SCPS Junior Selected to Represent Georgia in Women’s National Tournament

SCPS Junior Sarah Whalen has been selected for one of two teams representing the state of Georgia in the Women’s Lacrosse National Tournament. The tournament will be held on May 26 – 28 on the campus of Yale University in New Haven, CT.

The national tournament held annually in May, with its origins dating back to the early 1930s, hosts nearly 70 teams from across the country competing annually.  The national tournament is one of the nation’s marquee college recruiting events.  The event is open to all high school aged players, but players must try out for regional teams in order to participate.  Tryouts for the Georgia state teams were held on March 26, 2017, in Atlanta, Georgia with over 80 players participating.

Sarah played Varsity Lacrosse for Broad Run High School for the past two years in Ashburn, VA.  She is a team captain for the Lady Raiders and leads the team in assists and goals this year.
